Thanks for visiting my fundraising page. This March I’m walking 10,000 steps a day throughout the month to help beat cancer sooner.
It is estimated that 1000 people are diagnosed with cancer per day in the UK alone.
Currently the survival rate is 50%.
42% of the cases diagnosed are preventable.
I have chosen to focus the money I am able to raise on research into pancreatic cancer. This type of cancer only has a 1% survival rate, having changed very little over the past 40 years.
This can in some parts be attributed to diagnosis not occurring until the later stages of the disease. Due to the late stage diagnoses, it is the 5th most common cause of cancer deaths in the UK.
